6:02pm
their own investigation to figure out exactly what happened and whether or not it was criminal. >> the minute i found out about it, boom, i raised a red flag. >> reporter: the head coach, who was fired after bringing the allegations to light, says jayvee players said varsity players used genitalia to haze them. in a letter to principal documenting the claim, he wrote, if true, the allegations amount to sexual assault. legal analysts agree. >> if it's true, from what i under the facts to be for the boys to do and subject those young men, the junior varsity people, to what they subjected them to, is it sexual battery? absolutely. there's no question about it. it is sexual battery. >> reporter: of course that will be up to vallejo police to determine. they say they do not know how long their investigation will take. meanwhile, the sacramento

6:05pm
it comes especially at the line backing corps of that defensive unit. in fact, let's focus in on a couple of those guys. we'll call them patrick willis and navarro bauman. they've become a powerful 1-2 p punch in the line backing korm and their play is strengthening by learning from each other. bauman commented on the special relationship between the two. >> me and pat's relationship is very brotherly like. we do pretty much any and everything together, you know, whether we have any problems or whether it's something good. we have success. we enjoy playing with each other. you know, and i think we both push each other every single day. we don't get complacent with anything that we receive or accomplish. we always just trying to do better and make sure we can make our team better. >> and the 49ers came to new orleans on sunday, the baltimore ravens touched down in new

6:08pm
weeks. those super bowl ads already appearing on your computer, or anything else you're on. why companies aren't waiting until sunday to show their high-priced commercials n. about ten minutes our business and tech reporter scott budman breaks down the logic behind revealing those ads early online. we are your best source for 49ers coverage. we have more journalists on the ground in new orleans than any other local station. you can catch our coverage on air in every one of our newscasts throughout the day and, of course, on our website, nbcbayarea.com. from the current niners to a new legal problem for a former 49er, harris, facing nine years in pridz on for allegedly beating up his ex-boyfriend. th 30-year-old harris pled not guilty to felony domestic violence and assault charges. harris got into a fight with his ex-boyfriend in august. harris' attorney confirming this with us this afternoon, that his client was acting in self-defen

6:11pm
teen won't forget anytime soon. the decision that sent this suv flying off the santa cruz wharf. and good evening. i'm jeff ranieri in the nbc bay area weather center. temperatures dropping into the 40s in the north bay. napa at 49 degrees. we'll talk about the wind and some problems it's creating now and also when a few rare january 70s return in just a few minutes.
6:12pm
6:13pm
quite a catch. it wasn't a fish, but something much bigger being pulled out of the water in santa cruz. today, it happened today, it was a father/son driving lesson that went horribly wrong. nbc bay area's kris sanchez joins us from santa cruz to explain how the family car ended up in the ocean. kris? >> reporter: hi there, raj. we caught up with the father and the son here at the wharf today.
6:14pm
dad says they're not ready to talk but seeing that boy's face was heartbreaking. he looked completely unsettled. this is how much of the railing he took out as he plunged the family suv over this fence and down into the chilly waters sinking about 15 feet. dozens of people watch as a massive tow truck drags this four runner from the chilly waters of the bay and back on to the santa cruz wharf. almost no witnesses around 10:30 this morning as the 16-year-old still learning to drive made what could have been a deadly mistake for him, his father, and the family dog. >> the son has a permit and was practicing driving. and accidentally hit the accelerator rather than the brake. >> reporter: the father and his son swam to a kayak landing on their own. their dog wesley swam to shore. now because the accident happened right across from the lifeguard headquarters, marine rescue swimmers were ready to help right away.
6:15pm
though christian did not want to talk with us, we could tell by his face and that of his son that this was the scare of a lifetime. >> the other one is not sure which one they got out. you can see that the windshield is damaged so they could have easily gotten out of the windshield. >> reporter: something like this happens every three or four years. the christians were lucky. last time an elderly couple did not survive. so, again, father, son, and to go wesley, are all going to be okay. the suv is a different story. it's probably going to be a total loss since it was submerged in salt water for four hours. by the way, we did ask of the environmental impact of the vehicle going into the bay and it's expected to be minimal because it will dilute in so much water. >> that is quite an experience. thank you, kris. a so-called sleeper wave,
6:16pm
the third time it's happened this year. a woman and her friend were on the beach at shelter cove when a large wave swept her into the ocean. the body of the 32-year-old woman was found after about 45 minutes. her was also swept away but it managed to swim back to shore. visitors will be careful with those large waves. a man was killed on new year's day when a wave caught his dog and he went out to rescue it and then in november a couple drowned and their teenaged son disappeared trying to save their dog when it was pulled into the ocean. >> two firefighters ended up in the hospital with minor injuries and a home suffered major damage after a fire broke out in east san hjose this afternoon. the fire started around noon on holly drive. 11 people were living inside the single story home. six adults and five children. the red cross has stepped in helping them find temporary
6:17pm
home. >> some people are calling it the mayer effect, delivering profits and bringing good news to investors. our which is and tech reporter scott budman joins us with your money and more tonight. >> reporter: we'll start with yahoo! it's in a better place than we've seen in a long time. mayer is getting the credit for that delivering a quarterly report that came in ahead of wall street expectations and while admitting yahoo! still has a ways to go before truly competing with the likes of g g google bringing the profit numbers in high enough to bring some investors back into the fold. revenue growing for the first time in four years. yahoo! shares up about 3% in after hours trading. but if you want to talk real money, let's talk super bowl ad time, something like $127,000 a second during the game. why can't we see the ads now? because the companies making them want to get social. this ad for mercedes featuring a good looking model and a car in there somewhere will likely cost
6:18pm
$8 million for a minute of airtime during the super bowl. now mercedes really wants to you watch it during the game so why is it posting the ad for free online a week ahead of time? >> you can potentially double the amount of people that saw your commercial, you save $4 million. >> reporter: we visited san jose-based three marketeers to see how the super bowl game has changed when it comes to ads. yes, the companies still expect us to watch tv, but that's only part of it now. >> it's part of a much larger plan. that campaign involves online, involves social media. it involves contact as well as, you know, the actual event itself. >> reporter: and that's the default now? >> the triple crown. >> reporter: for example, because awudi has to compete wih mercedes and other companies, it wants you to remember its ad and its brand beyond the tv set. if you get social with a product
6:19pm
through youtube or facebook, maybe you'll be more likely to think about it when you're shopping for a soft drink or a snack. ♪ gangnam style >> reporter: even psy is getting into the act thanks to a company hoping his huge online following will transfer to television. >> the big part about advertising is branding and awareness and trying to create that association with your brand. much more than having them watch a commercial. you want them involved. >> reporter: and companies are willing to take a risk that you'll be more involved by seeing their ads over and over again before and after the game itse itself. remember, this comes from youtube advertisements that ran online before the super bowl were seen six times as often as ads that ran only after the super bowl. so you can expect what's happening this year to be the start of the trend. raj? >> thank you, scott. >>. >> reporter: you bet. let's check in with jeff ranieri. it's monday.
6:20pm

6:45pm
prohibition. >> reporter: one of most popular searches on yahoo! today. while irving bristles at the thought, bartenders do have a responsibility to police their customers. >> we are licensed by the state of california to serve alcohol and as a function that have license we are expect ed every minute that we are open to be diligent about that service. >> reporter: on super bowl su y sunday they plan to station hundreds in hot spots like the mission north beach. quite sure the party will only be just beginning when the last down is played. joe rosato jr., nbc bay area news. >> drink responsibly. for people betting on the super bowl, even the amusement park, six flags is betting its sister park in baltimore. a special link to the vallejo park. the coach provided the new roller coaster last year. take a look.

temperatures up into the upper 50s and also a few low 60s in the north bay. let's take you outside to that live hd sky camera network. a lot of traffic. the good news if you're traveling tonight, no rain drops expected so that will help your commute and then up to the north, you're going to be able to see that wind that we talked about creating those waves 10 to 12 feet really shaking around the camera there as the bay bridge back there in the distance, both hands on the wheel if you're heading near the coastline for tonight or tomorrow. next 48 hours we do have rainfall up here in washington and oregon. that's going to continue to skate on by. we're not going to get any activity in terms of rainfall from that. here comes high pressure building offshore. it's going to get stronger here tuesday, wednesday, thursday, potentially producing some weather that's going to feel more like april mid spring than what we're currently at. still stuck in winter. temperatures by the end of the week in the 60s with even a few potential 70s. air quality is also going to continue to decline here as we head through each and every day. so who could have the best chance of maybe some shorts
6:48pm
weather coming in the forecast? let's get a look. by thursday that's when the heat should be topping out and for the santa cruz mountains the offshore winds, the strongest for you, santa cruz 70, los gatos 69. of the zone of the warmest weather. the east bay and north bay likely not as warm but you'll definitely see the temperatures going up. tonight 35 in santa rosa. 35 in napa. a few areas of isolated patchy frost likely but we should stay above the freezing mark here, temperatures in the low 40s for the south bay. hazy sunshine. numbers going up a little bit. upper 50s to low 60s. for the east bay, we'll stay cool as the wind blows. 58 in the castro valley. 58 in alameda. 57 in san francisco and 63 in santa rosa. sunny weather here tuesday, wednesday, and also on thursday. by this weekend we know the 49ers, of course, in new orleans, for the super bowl.
6:49pm
we are going to have some dry weather back here for all of the celebrations happening back in the city and the weather in new orleans is going to be very similar during the game with 50s, a little bit more humidity but no rainfall expected. >> thank you, jeff. >> no problem. let's get to sports. jim kozimor doesn't have to worry about his hair in new orleans so who cares about the humidity? >> no, exactly. my goodness. i am drenched in humidity. you could wring me out there's so much humidity going on. yikes almighty. a little super bowl xlvii. they spent the day talking to immedia media, casually getting ready and having team meetings, but when you have something to say, jim harbaugh says it big. you need a team most valuable player for the season. though he didn't have much production, the team mvp is
6:50pm
alden smith. here is what alden smith had to say about the end of his year. >> i'm getting double-teamed a lot, triple-teamed and the quarterback is getting the ball up. the other thing that's really cool, if i'm not making a play, there's been times i'm getting double-teamed and the sack comes by somebody else. >> voted as our most valuable player, i think that speaks volumes for the impact he had on our team. you don't have the sacks there, that low hanging fruit for people to see. the thing alden is doing game in and game out. >> he's been dominant. every time he's in there, he's been dominant coming off the edge. he's been dominant stopping the run. he helps our team win a lot of games. so i definitely think he's up there for the mvp as well. last year he had 14 sacks. this year everybody questioned could he be an every down linebacker and he showed it. >> he's always doing his job. you know, i think that's pretty
6:51pm
much the mvp always doing his job. you don't have to say too much to him and he's always producing. you know when we need a good play, he's able to produce that. i think he's very worthy of that award. >> you have guys that are on the team that are all-stars that made pro bowls consecutively. vernon davis, frank gore, man, i can go on. i come in and get the mvp. it means a lot. >> so ready for sunday and super bowl xlvii? you might as well spend the week in this great, unique town 0, the crescent city, new orleans. we are finding out the unique joys you'll find right down there. i juggle on the street to save for college. >> reporter: you juggle on the street. what does that mean? >> i try and convince people to
6:52pm
stand around and watch what i do. i have the clubs and these knifes that i do right here. and basically it all leads up to me getting a sucker to lie down underneath me while i juggle knifes over them. >> reporter: a sucker. how often do those guys walk around here? >> if you want to do it right now -- >> reporter: do i look like a sucker? >> i think you look like someone who will go along with it. we'll get to the sucker part. >> reporter: how often do you drop them? >> nine times out of ten it goes all right. i got it nine times today and they've gone perfectly well. on the count of three, one, two, three. how are you feeling down there? >> reporter: i don't feel good. i don't feel good. >> all right. now is the part i have to stop. now i want to say this is the hardest part of the show because i don't always get to do this so
6:53pm
i don't get to practice very much so hopefully this goes well and we're going to do it right now. >> whew. >> reporter: wow. >> that's my show. i hope you enjoy it. >> reporter: good work. thank you for not killing me. >> all right. the new man on the team. that's why he got that assignment. let's move on 0. all that alex smith did to lose his job was to suffer through a concussion in a game against the st. louis rams. many players want to turn their back on the team in that situation but not alex, he has earned the praise of his head coach. >> another person really to credit colin's success because he has helped coach colin. he's been right there at his side sitting in the meetings every day. and he coaches colin now more
6:54pm
than i do, and that speaks volumes for the kind of person and teammate that alex smith is. >> the golden state warriors continue their road trip and a return from andrew coming up at 11:00 tonight, we'll show you him getting a start as the warriors took on the raptors and it was interesting watching ahmed fareed from that report with the juggling knifes. usually in our newsroom, guys, when we see knifes, they're being shoved into someone's back. reporting from new orleans, i'm jim kozimor. >> and at midnight tonight jim will be juggling the knifes and poor ahmed will be on the ground. >> don't say that. >> we're back in a moment. >> that's not how jim is.
